" Tri - Shapes " - Weekly Challenge #48

Our guest Challenger this week is 'the lovely and talented' Sue Clark, who says:  "Three basic shapes (circle, square, and triangle) when combined, can be used to create a string.  Just like the infinite possibilities of putting tangle patterns together, using these 3 shapes together and altering their size and placement on the tile would create infinite possibilities for a string idea.  I thought it would be fun to also 'tri' all new tangles (ones you have never tried before)."

Good one, Sue!!  And here is my attempt at this challenge.....

ZIA - Sakura Micron Black #'s 01, 02, 08; graphite shading.

Tangles:  Fish, Flux, Kandysnake, Sea Shell and.... the tangle around the triangle (which I created but have not given it a name yet).

Thank you for visiting....
.....and happy tangling.


  1. WOW! This is really beautiful! I love what you did with the string and the tangles you used.

  2. Love how you actually did the triangle string with a tangle!

  3. This is great, I love your use of white space and your tangling is wonderful. I really enjoy your new banner very Maria-like. Wonderful examples!

  4. Your fan in the circle adds a fantastic oriental effect Tricia and love the triangle.

  5. Like how you positioned the triangle and the white spaces and love the tangles you used in the circle. Well done!!!

  6. This is really beautiful. Fabulous.
    Lovely greet

  7. Great interpretation - I particularly like how you changed scale of your background pattern as it filled the triangle! Your circle fills are really pretty too - excellent work! (btw, you mention kandysnake, but it looks more like coaster to me - isn't kandysnake more alternating arches and "snakey"?)

  8. Thank you for your comments.

    Terrie, you may be correct about the kandysnake/coaster tangle. My sketchbook has so many variations (tanglations) that I sometimes confuse myself. I'll check out the "Tangle Patterns" site for clarification.
    Thank you.

  9. I think you should call that pattern "weeds" :0) xo S
